Description 

The Grey Cliffs Picnic Area is on the north side of the road just up canyon from the entrance to the Little Mill Campground (which contains Division Wall, among others).

There is a large parking lot that has room for eight or so cars, a bulletin board, and a bathroom.


Getting There 

Drive up the canyon past the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, watching for the entrance to the Little Mill Campground on your right.

Shortly after passing the campground entrance a sign on the left announces the picnic area. Don't pull in at the first, small parking area for one or two cars; wait for the larger lot, shown here.

Unknown 2 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Shame Wall
A fairly straightforward start to the ubiquitous right-side-of-the wall ledge (you'll pass 3 very closely spaced bolts just before the ledge).From the ledge large positive holds quickly give way to a blank-appearing area, which is then followed by an enjoyable roof. Another ledge, one more bolt, and then the anchors.Beware of loose stuff near the top, and be careful of the flake on your right as you pass the last bolt to the chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
